Understanding Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip replacement surgery, also known as hip arthroplasty, involves replacing a damaged hip joint with a prosthetic implant. This procedure is highly effective in relieving pain, restoring mobility, and improving the quality of life for patients suffering from hip joint problems.

Arthroplasty vs Replacement: What's the Difference?

Arthroplasty is a general term for surgical procedures that restore the function of a joint. Hip replacement, or total hip arthroplasty, specifically refers to the surgical replacement of the hip joint. While arthroplasty can include other procedures like partial hip replacement or resurfacing, total hip arthroplasty is the most common and comprehensive form.

Types of Arthroplasty

There are several types of hip arthroplasty, each tailored to the specific needs of the patient:

  • Total Hip Arthroplasty: The entire hip joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant.
  • Partial Hip Replacement: Only the damaged part of the hip joint is replaced.
  • Hip Resurfacing: The damaged surface of the hip joint is capped with a smooth metal covering.

Who Needs Arthroplasty?

Arthroplasty is typically recommended for individuals suffering from severe joint pain and mobility issues that do not respond to conservative treatments. Common conditions that may require hip arthroplasty include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, and avascular necrosis.

Symptoms Indicating the Need for Hip Replacement

Persistent hip pain: Continuous pain in the hip that does not subside with rest or medication.

Stiffness in the hip joint: Difficulty in moving the hip, especially after periods of inactivity.

Limited range of motion: Reduced ability to move the hip in its full range, affecting daily activities.

Difficulty walking: Trouble with walking or needing assistance due to hip discomfort.

Pain that persists even at rest: Hip pain that remains constant, even when lying down or sitting.

Inability to perform routine tasks: Struggling with everyday activities like bending, sitting, or climbing stairs due to hip issues.

Arthroplasty vs Arthroscopy

While arthroplasty involves replacing or repairing a joint to restore its function, arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to diagnose and treat joint problems. Arthroscopy uses a small camera to visualize the inside of the joint, allowing surgeons to perform repairs through tiny incisions. This method often results in quicker recovery times and less pain compared to more invasive procedures like arthroplasty. For certain hip conditions, such as labral tears or femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), arthroscopy may be a suitable alternative to arthroplasty
